I love decorating in the Fall. I think it has to do with all the warm bursts of color in all the Fall decor and all the cute Halloween stuff. I’m not much into scary – but I do love cute! Pumpkins add stylish, creative and fun touches to Fall decorating. Some folks carve some really creative Jack-o-lanterns! I remember loving the pumpkin carving process when I was a kid. And I remember loving the process with my kids. I also remember having fun doing it with my grand kids when they lived close. Carving them by myself? Not.so.slimey.much. So, it really wasn’t the pumpkin carving as much as it was time spent doing something with my family that made the happy memory! Last year, just for fun, my pumpkins were canned…literally! lol! This year I purchased a couple of small pumpkins and contemplated what to do with them. I finally decided on giving them faces with our Glimmer brads. This was easy and fun! And…it took less than 10 minutes! I used a retired ribbon; but any green ribbon will do! I considered the burlap ribbon since burlap is so popular right now. However, these are my “outdoor” pumpkins and I didn’t think the burlap would be seen from the street as well. My glimmer brads will be able to be reused, too. No waste! I used the paper piercing and a small hammer to make the holes and then just popped the brads right into the holes! It was just too easy and no mess! And they are cute!
Here is a pic of my “canned pumpkins!”
